Drobo 5D overview

  • 1Description

This B&H Kit comes with the Drobo 5Dt 5-Bay Thunderbolt 2 RAID Enclosure and five 6TB NAS hard drives to provide you with a Direct Attach Storage (DAS) solution. The included 6TB hard drives are designed to run 24x7 and provide a total capacity of 30TB. Once installed into the 5Dt's bays, you can configure these drives in a RAID array utilizing Drobo's BeyondRAID technology. In addition, the 5Dt (Turbo) edition is outfitted with a Drobo accelerator bay that sports an mSATA card for increased performance of up to 30% on streaming video and 3x read performance.

To keep up with the drive's enhanced performance, Drobo has equipped this enclosure with two Thunderbolt 2 ports, which provide daisy-chaining support as well as up to 20 Gb/s bi-directional data transfer speeds. Moreover, there is one USB 3.0 port for greater connectivity options with non-Thunderbolt systems.

Drobo 5D reviews

5Dt 30TB (5 x 6TB) 5-Bay Thunderbolt 2 RAID Enclosure with Drives is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deep Data I have massive TIFF/RAW still image files. Many 2 to 4 GB each up-rezzed for 6 foot prints etc. I had overwhelmed my 3TB Imac and had several peripheral hard drives. I recently decided to review options for a much bigger file system with a RAID for safety. I am not super techie. So by searching various reputable comparisome review sites -- I found that DROBO seemed to be safe -- especially if you dedicate two drives to redundancy. Not too noisy. And fast with a built in memory buffer to add speed. -- I now have 30 TB Drobo with five 7200 rpm pro-drives and the result is that I can put all my Image files in one source and now work on my images in the Drobo for the foreseeble future. It runs at about the same speed or better than just working on my iMac. Thanks to Thunderbolt. - I also finaly got around to signing up for an offsite back up system for the Drobo and my Imac for emergeny use - Time Machine only works of the main Imac Drive. Set up was pretty easy with Drobo's set up system. So far all drives and Drobo seem to work -- the drives seemed to need to bed in to cut noise. And the one time I called Drobo service the guy was patient and friendly and accurate with his cure for an issue that was actually caused by an error in my Mac's FontBook.
